Today is the Tenth Anniversary since we launched Utadanet.com!
Its amazing how fast the time has passed and really doesn't seem like it has been 10 years! Over the decade, we have witnessed and were a part of so much of Hikki's career. But also, the community and friendships that have formed here, has been an amazing thing to witness. It has been heart warming to see UN was a platform where people met, would help each other out, and where lasting friendships have formed.
For those who were there before the beginning of UtadaNet, from conversations in a chatroom, Be0wu1f, Q, seraphim, Lord Snow, Conan, Kangrui, Gokie, luvhikki and a few others, it probably feels weird for all of us that it's been ten years.
In the short version of our history, English speaking fans used to frequent another Hikki fan-site community called HikkiCentral. But in May 2003, the owners of that site decided to close down. And to fill the void, in May 2004 UtadaNet.com opened!
(slightly longer version)
It has been ten years for us, and fifteen years since Hikki first debuted. So long as there are enough people who want to talk about Hikaru Utada - we will be here.
